John Gibson: You're not getting the vote, mate!
Sorry, mate, you're not on! The night Alex Cole-Hamilton's vote-for-me prod for Edinburgh Central flopped through the letterbox, his co-leader was on the Six O'Clock News, Vince Cable.
Vince rhymes with mince. That's what he was talking on immigration. He was having a let-'em-all-come-in rant. The LibDems are bad news, indeed for Westminster, for Holyrood.

Don't make money your god, son, my dear old mum would say to me, and living up to her advice hasn't been easy. It does seem to be an ongoing struggle for Elton.
Come off it, my man! You could comfortably clear our national debt with your bank book, yet you appear to be doing your brains in raking it in when, one imagines, you've no need. You could be stretched out with your sun hat and flip flops on the beach at Porty enjoying life.
He has just clinched a three-year deal in Vegas at Caesars Palace. His previous stint at the hotel ran for five years up to April 2000. Currently he's touring the States, prior to a slew of European gigs starting May 24.
I'm invariably tempted to gossip about Elton every time I see Davie Paton, his former lead guitarist, but Davie has enough to do with his Jam House gig in Queen Street.
